    1. Ghost Writer - Review by Martha A Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish "I don't believe in ghosts," I used to tell anyone who'd ask. I'm a 'techie,' a computer programmer. I deal with data and facts, not fiction and fantasy. So how did I get mixed up with a temperamental, egotistical, rude, smart, funny, aggravating, self-centered, loveable uh spirit? Okay, if you insist, ghost. Nanette (or Nan as most called her) Burton found herself caught up in [...]


    2. I generally don’t like stories with paranormal beings, but I loved Ghost Writer. This romance is a modern update of the tear-jerker The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. In Ghost Writer, the lonely and generally luckless Nan Burton inherits a run-down cottage from her great, great aunt. Then she discovers she must share the cottage with the ghost Max Murdoch, who once wrote florid romances. In acceding to his wish that she finish his last novel, she discovers herself.This well-written is a quick, fun read. [...]


    3. Ghost Writer by Lorna Collins was a delight. When Nanette inherits a cottage and a small dog, her life changes forever. It seems the cottage is inhabited by a ghost who was a writer and who wants his last novel completed. Nanette’s employer downsized, and she was part of the downsizing. From trying to write and complete Max’s novel to dealing with life, she has her work cut out for her. This story contains humor, more than one romance and a lot of fun. I don’t generally read anything but m [...]


    4. Ghost Writer is a delightful novel, a mystery about a young girl finding herself with a little help from a ghost who resides in her seaside cottage. The main character, Nanette Burton, has a great voice and it's fun to read her plucky quips as she interacts with the helpful yet cantankerous ghost. This is the kind of book you want for a rainy day, to snuggle up with under the covers and finish in one sitting. I did! Afterwards, you will be uplifted having learned about touching relationships and [...]


    5. "Ghost Writer" by Lorna Collins is a different kind of mystery. No murder and no crime. And yet, it kept me, an avid mystery/suspense reader and writer, intrigued to the very end. I didn't want to stop turning the pages because I'd become so immersed in the life of the main character, Nan Burton, and I had to see what would happen to her next and how the story would end. I wasn't disappointed. "Ghost Writer" is a really wonderful read and I highly recommend it.



    6. Nanette's life quickly hits a road block when she loses her job, her boyfriend, her car, and her apartment all within a few months. She thinks everything is turning around when her great aunt passes away and she finds out her aunt has left her something, but is disappointed when that "something" turns out to be a dog she doesn't want and a trust fund she can't access for three years. The only consolation is a seaside cottage her aunt leaves her. That is, until she moves in and realizes the cotta [...]


    7. To make this simple, Ghost Writer- is a fun book to read. Nanette has lost her job during a bank crisis. But at the same time, her great aunt Netta, dies and leaves her a small cottage on the beach and a dog. The rest of her inheritance is tied up for some years, and contingent on the good health of the dog. Nanette is not a dog person.It turns out that the house is inhabited by the ghost of a famous writer from some years back. And this ghost will be there, and give Nanette a hard time, until s [...]


    8. Fun with a Talkative GhostNanette, an unemployed techie, inherits a beach cottage complete with Max, a grumpy, egocentric ghost who won’t let her have any peace until she finishes the manuscript he began when he died in 1977. She begins her task, only to find that she can’t read his scribblings, but the spirit’s secretary is still alive and agrees to help with the project, not knowing Max haunts the cottage. The story is a refreshing change from books with broken characters and life-changi [...]


    9. Nan Burton loses her job, apartment, boyfriend, and even her car. But she inherits a cottage on the sand near Laguna Beach, California. Unfortunately, the house comes equipped with highly-opinionated ghost, Max Murdoch. He was a famous author prior to his death in 1977 and decides that Nan's purpose for being there is to type his final manuscript and submit it to his publisher. She's the first person who can actually hear him, so he is determined to make noise until she complies with his wishes. [...]


    10. Ghost Writer is an engaging, entertaining story written with wit and warmth. Nan, the smart, skeptical, practical protagonist, is perfectly characterized and completely believable for a woman who has no choice but to believe in ghosts. I enjoyed this book, especially the few twists at the end that make the conclusion particularly satisfying.
